The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is one of the world’s largest convention and exhibition facilities. Recognised as Australasia’s ‘Leading Meeting and Conference Centre’ (2012-2016, World Travel Awards) the Centre connects its users with amazing spaces, leading technology and award winning food.

The Challenge

MCEC required a dynamic and flexible solution for instant display of their fast-moving event and exhibition schedule. The team at MCEC also wanted the display to require minimal administration time to update event details, even up to the last minute.

The Solution

Automated multiple data feeds were created using PADS4 software, delivering reliable data on a real-time basis from both internal and external data sources. Introducing social media support in the Digital Signage system provided an ideal solution to keep customers rapidly up to date. For example, event specific Twitter feeds are managed from a tablet and displayed on multiple screens throughout the centre. 

The Centre has won a Digital Screen Association Industry Excellence award and an INCON Digital Infrastructure Award for its use of PADS4 digital signage solution.
